Palatino VE-500 Electric Upright Basses


  1. I’ve look at 50+ sites but nobody gives the dimensions of the instrument. How long is it? Does it breakdown for travel? Is it like checking skis at the airport? I did not buy because I don’t have that info. Just coppying the manufacturer’s blurb about sweet sound,ect. (which most sites do), nobody takes the time to give specifications other than wood, scale, etc. Get down to the nitty gritty! What kind of strings, etc.


    • Scale length: 40-3/4″ Thats the nut to bridge measurement.

      No it doesn’t break down for travel – I’m assuming you mean the neck and body. As with other basses the endpin does retract.

      As far as the wood is concerned it is a spruce top, maple on the sides and back.

      Yes it will be like checking skis at the airport. You will need a more substantial case to travel with the bass.

      I’m not sure what type of strings come with the bass…though a setup and new strings are always recommended with a new bass to get the sound you are looking for.

      I hope this helps!!
